with officials from the obama administration. he spoke to us earlier from there. i asked him what germany and europe could do to support these democratic movements in the tunisian, egypt, and elsewhere. >> i think it is now necessary that we strengthen, and we have decreed institutions which allow the people of tunisia and egypt to decide about their own fate, about their own future in a democratic way. this means that time is needed for ganing new polical parties and in the wider spectrum of secular opposition and a secular political parties can help to establish these parties through our political foundations. in germany, all the political parties have political foundations. so we can cover the whole political spectrum from the left to the right and vice versa. we could also help in an economic way, because there are big economic problems in tunisia and egypt well. if we open the european markets more broadly and agricultural products from tunisia and egypt, this might be part of the discussion to the i am favoring this step. a third step would be that they should open our universities
, please stand by. we're going live to president obama who is making a statement. >> it's a beginning. i'm sure there will be difficult days ahead and many questions remain unanswered. but i am confident that the people of egypt can find the answers and do so peacefully, constructively, and in the spirit of unity thatas defined these last few weeks. for gyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day. the military has served patriotically and responsibly as a caretaker to the state and will have to ensure a transition that is credible in the eyes of the egyptian people, which means protecting the rights of the egyptian citizens, lifting the emergency law, reviving the constitution and other laws to make this change irreversible and laying out a clear path to elections that are fair and free. above all, this transition must bring all of egypt's voices to the table. for the spirit of peaceful protests and perseverance that the egyptian people have shown can serve as a powerful wind at the back of this change. the united states will continue to be a f

that president obama is a muslim? well, it gets worse. they also think that the president hates america. first lady michelle obama re spopds. this is the story that has me fired up first tonight, folks. for the second time this week, president obama reached out to the obstructionists who were on a mission to see him fail. on monday, the president went over to the chamber of commerce and told america's business leaders to show some economic patriotism but creating some jobs. well, today the president had house republicans over for lunch. he met with john boehner, house majority whip kevin mccarthy and eric cantor. cantor was smauking smack before the big lunch with the president. cantor took the president to task for his statement that he made in the chamber on monday. >> as we work with you to make america a better place to do business, i'm hoping that all of you are thinking what you can do for america. ask yourselves what you can do to hire more american workers. what you can do to support the american economy and invest in this nation. >> what you can do to help america. it's a golden sound
the obama administration predicted. i think it's a time for straight talk diplomatically and i'm sure it is is happening between the obama administration is the mubarak government. >> i was talking to a senior administration official who said that mubarak may have sent these people out to show to the people of egypt and the world that he is needed during this next eight months for this transition, that he is not going to leave right away as the u.s. has been privately telling him that he has to do, that he is needed to preserve law and order. and that is not the military doing this, these are these people, mubarak supporters who have been seen in previous elections. they are known commonly as thugs. is that a credible scenario? >> you know, it's hard to believe that the attacks by these pro mubarak forces against these peaceful demonstrators were not ashifted by the government. it seems to me reasonable to assume that there was some government comris complicit in these attacks. for large days they were peaceful in tahrir square and they were kids. there were older people. there were s

to his combative approach to new jersey's democratic dominated legislature. he mocked his obama-backed predecessor john core sooin who said he would sleep on a cot in his office until the new jersey cries i was averted. >> i said you want to pass income tax increase, that's fine. i am going to veto it. and if you want to close down the government because of that, that's fine. but i want to tell you something. i am not moving any cot into the office to sleep in here. take a look at me. you think i'm sleeping on a cot? we submitted a budget that cut real spending 9% year over year. every department of state government was cut. and we balanced the budget without any new or increased taxes. >> then he attacked president obama for pushing investments in his state of the union speech. >> the big things are high speed rail. the big things are high speed internet access. a million electric cars on the road by some date. ladies and gentlemen, that is the candy of american politics. those are not the big things, because let me guarantee you something. if we don't fix the real big things,

the obama administration tand democrat congress pursued an agenda of every frustrated liberal at the expense of the public good and contrary to the will of the people. when america needed a growth strategy to revive our session-racked economy, the obama administration and the pelosi-reid congress gave us a $1 trillion stimulus bill that only stimulated more government. as unemployment soared to 10%, america needed and called for policies that would spur job creation. instead of focusing on jobs, the obama administration and its democrat congress spent a year concocketting a government-run health care system, one that stifles job creation as well as drives up the cost of health care. at a time when we desperately needed incentives to create new jobs, president obama and his congressional allies tried to impose the biggest tax increase in american history on small business owners by letting the bush tax cuts expire. two years of their calling for these massive tax increases caused more uncertainty among employers, making them reluctant to hire anybody or spend more money. along the way, the pr

president obama see it differently. he told a local reporter, quote, some of what i heard coming out of wisconsin where you are making public employees to collective bargain generally seems like an assault on unions and it's very important to understand that public employees they are neighbors and friends. >> when asked, whether he was taking sides? >> he expressed his opinion directly. >> shannon: one official says the dnc has been organizing rallies activatelogy phone backs to lobby lawmakers. the bill exempts local firefighters, police officers and members of the wisconsin state patrol but can it could have a major impact on teachers who have been adding force. >> as much as the economics is important our ability to defend our students' right to fair education is on the line. >> dnc is involved in a similar show down playing out in ohio. they urged them dnc to suspend tactics. this is not the way you begin an adult conversation. >> brett: much more on this on the panel. >>> back here in washington, congress is considering cuts to federal spending. that is prompting howlswls from o
